Recipe Story

I first made pasta with my grandmother when I was about 10 I think. The very next day I tried it myself and it was a disaster. I kept trying it until I got it down. After seeing how easy it is to make your own pasta it will be hard for you to eat dried boxed pasta. I still do it, but would always rather eat my own...

scramble the eggs inside the well - once lightly scrambled start incorporating flour into the mixture from the sides of the well

knead for 10 minutes
wrap tightly in plastic wrap and stick in the fridge for 30 minutes
using small sections at a time put the floured dough through a pasta roller and flatten into nice sheets
cut the pasta and let dry for 20 or so minutes

How fun! Love the background music! I cannot believe I've never made pasta! Now one thing I DO enjoy is making my own sauce :) Mmmm, delicious! I love pasta but actually hated it as a kid because we had for dinner so much that I got sick of it!

I'm glad you want pasta after watching it - my job is done lol... The sauce in the last shot is actually Ragu's Organic Pasta Sauce. I know it's easy to make your won and don't ask why I would go to the trouble of making my own pasta then using jared sauce on it but the stuff is amazing. It's so fresh and light you would think it was made from your garden that very day it's so good. I've tricked some good foodie friends - told them I made it from scratch and every single one of them was blown away when I brought out the empty jar. We often use olive oil and garlic - Maitlin's fav is freshly grated parm with a bit of browned butter (it's my fav too).

Yes making pasta is such fun. We often have a pasta day with the kids as they love to make different flavours and shapes. I seem to get floured with semolina all over me thanks to Andrew and Tiffiny. We use an Atlas machine for parpadelle and fettucine cuts and Ravioli , but also for some shapes we have a Simac extruder for Capellini /angel hair and such. We still buy Strozopretti, Gigli, Radiatori and other fun and fancy shapes. We always use semolina flour. Well I have used buckwheat a couple of times mixed in. Love making flavours-saffran, curry, porcini, dill, habanaro, craked ppper, etc. It is amazing how fast fresh pasta cooks like in 2 or 3 minutes! What sauce are you making? Sometimes we just toss with olive oil and then fresh garlic and split cherry tomatoes and garden basil in chiffonade, S & P and heat in the skillet just until the ingredients heat through-maybe use a little pasta water if necessary. Now this is good. I am wanting pasta-see what you did? LOL Enjoy!
